it works, and is very simple, and it is comfortable to use.
look in eg. <URL: http://mail.gnu.org/pipermail/gcl-devel/>.

doesn't handle mime very well unless it's been fixed recently
(attachments & quoted-unreadable encoding).

mhonarc has more features. www.mail-archive.com offers free
mailing list archiving using mhonarc, but it sometimes lags
a few days.
